Today on Autism Live, Shannon talks with Micaela Connery and Laura McLelland from Unified Theater about their mission to provide inclusion based theater experiences to middle school and high school students around the country.  Caroline Wilson, executive director of Autism Society Los Angeles talks with Shannon about the devastating shooting at UC Santa Barbara over the weekend, about reports that the shooter was on the spectrum, how the press coverage, in light of the recent Washington Post article declaring there is a "significant" connection between Autism and mass murders, has not always been responsible, and perhaps more importantly, what can we learn from this tragedy so we can prevent it from ever happening again?  Self Determination and an update on the Disney disability pass are also discussed.
